4.88/5  rDev +21.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured from the bottle into Tulip this brew presents a pillowy cloud of suds atop a glowing golden/orange base. Nice head retention and moderate carbonation are also noted. lots of fine sediment in suspension. Lacing is slippery but leaves some good abstract art on the glass.

Real nice hoppy resinous aroma(straight citron) in the nose backed closely by sweet malty bread and the alcohol finishes out the whiff.

So well balanced. Sweet and bitter mingle perfectly on the tastebuds. again the alcohol is in the background with a nice warming finish.

Slick, creamy mouthfeel upfront with a ever so slight drying effect out the back.

Dispicably drinkable.
